    Well, they bought the home, but I do not think it has been surveyed yet.... so I do not know. They might come to me this year. Whenever you buy something in La Jolla, I think it takes some time to get your feet under you again.

    Display exterior walls in roof plan view

    I leave interior and exterior walls on the default layer. It is not worth the hassle to separate them. For 2 stories I have learned to use room fills to hide lower floor walls that are under the second floor envelope. I just wish that the DOORS would take on the fill of the adjacent room. IOW, I can see the ref floor below that I do not want to see. So why don't I turn that layer off? because there are some items OUTSIDE OF THOSE 2ND FLOOR PERMITER that I do want to see, i.e. the first floor walls that are outside of the 2nd floor envelope.

    Thanks Steve, from what I have read, it is a big change. Was it change that you can now not live without? Top 2 features for you?

    Auto elevations

    That is what I would of guessed. I am not sure I would dash the walls. I like the way you "hugged" the terrain close to house so as to hide some of foundation wall, but to avoid the hassle of manipulating the "SOLID" lines above grade, I would leave them solid above and below grade. Since you are using the color of the foundation walls, I would leave the lines solid. The use of the terrain is very nice. I am so into editing as little as possible... if it was real stone, it would be below grade sitting on some sort of a footing.... if it was applied phony stone..... it is typically stopped at the stucco street. (above the terrain).... just thinking out loud

    Auto elevations

    2 questions: 1- now why do I not see the stone below grade? 2- why is wall below grade dashed but the line of wall above grade solid?

    Apple Silicon / macOS 11 Big Sur

    I read some reviews on Big Sur and the feedback is the Big Sur slowed the computer, so I have not updated the OS. Has anybody had a bad experience using Big Sur with CA?
  22. Hey guys, I thought we could have a plan view in layout displaying single line framing and then another view in layout displaying double line framing. Is this true or not? Again late to the party on this, but can it be done?
  23. To follow up on that, we can use single line for the first floor and double line for the second floor. Hmmmm, I wonder if I can use ref layers..... probably too much trouble at this time.
  24. Thanks Michael, that is what I thought. I sure wish it was view specific.
  25. Am I the only guy that has this problem. I have to stand on my left foot holding an umbrella as I monkey around trying to get the floor joists to go in the correct direction. Just a waste of time.
